It’s been confirmed, the two women who stepped forward with another round of R. Kelly allegations, did in fact, testify before a grand jury in Chicago before issuing their press conference. As reported, attorney Gloria Allred is representing the two women over an alleged incident that took place after an R. Kelly concert sometime in the past. Latresa Scaff and Rochelle Washington said “many people” knew the then-teens were with R. Kelly one night more than two decades ago.
The women, who were about 16 and 15, had gone to an R. Kelly/LL Cool J concert in Baltimore in 1995 or 1996, and say that while at an after-party at a club, R. Kelly singled them out and got them a cab to his hotel room, where they believed there would be another party, reports the AP. Once there but before the singer arrived, the excited girls say they called an area radio station and went on-air saying they were with R. Kelly. What the women say happened next is why they appeared at a Thursday news conference with lawyer Gloria Allred. Scaff, now 40, says when R. Kelly entered the room his penis was exposed. He requested a threesome and Washington, now 39, says she declined and went into the bathroom, per the New York Times.
When Kelly was alone with me, he asked me to perform oral sex on him. I was under the influence … and did it. He then had sexual intercourse with me even though I did not have the capacity to consentLatresa Scaff
